New To Flower Mound? Won't You Be My Neighbor!

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

If you planned to move to Flower Mound, Texas this past spring when the Bluebonnets were blooming but didn't, every season offers beauty. Here in Flower Mound seasons change but the reasons for moving never changes. New residents will find there is a lot to look forward to when you choose Flower Mound. 

 

Artists

If you're new to Flower Mound, did you know the Town of Flower Mound accepts submissions to display your paintings inside the Town Hall located at 2121 Cross Timbers for all to see and enjoy? Your collection will be featured on the wall by the entrance doors. Many people pass through the doors and would enjoy admiring your talent. 

 

Changes in Homestead Exemptions 

The Town Council unanimously approved a property tax break for Flower Mound residents for the homestead exemptions to go in effect for the 2021-22 fiscal year from the current 2.5% to 5%. It pays to buy a residential property rather than rent. For example, under the current exemption, a resident in Flower Mound who owns a home valued at $300K pays property taxes on $292,500. Under the new 5% homestead exemptions a home valued at $300K will  property owners would now pay property taxes on $285K.  

 

Housing

Now is the time to learn about Economics. It's all about Supply & Demand! With low inventory, demand is high. Buyers currently have low mortgage rates and they are seeing prices increase. High demand means homes are selling for above asking price. It's all about understanding the economy,  patience and determination.  

 

Uh Oh!

Serious damage can cause recyclable machinery to fail when these plastic bags get tangled. Plastic bags cannot be placed in recycling bins for curbside pickup. Although plastic bags and paper are recyclable (Ziplock, Bubble Wrap, grocery bags, newspaper sleeves, reclosable bags) people need to drop off their plastic bags and paper products to other locations such as:

 

Community Activity Center

Senior Center

Flower Mound Library

Many local grocery stores accept them at the front of the stores

 

Demolition

For many years, residents enjoyed swimming at the Lewisville ISD Natatorium located near Leonard & Helen Johns Community Park. For safety reasons, the building has been demolished. Under consideration is the site for the new cultural arts center.

 

Comings & Goings

Eric Bouler - Why thank you! I wanted prospective buyers to know what they can expect. Flowers do grow very well here and you can usually find blooms most anytime of the year.

Hello Patricia,  I am not a painter so could not do that but now that wine place sounds interesting to try.

Hello Patricia - taking a hint from Fred Rogers where kindness, helpfulness and some good ol' neighborly local advice is welcome in every community.

Just love those blue bonnets, Patricia. Is the homesteading discount for everyone or specific demographics. We don't really have one in NC and in SC it's for disabled and seniors. But then, our property taxes are considerably lower than they are in Texas.

Nina Hollander, Broker - the homestead exemption is available to all homeowners who apply between January 1 and April 30 through their appraisal district. It applies to property owners of a house, condo, or manufactured home on owned or leased land as long as the owner lives on it or owns it. Additional home exemption applies to home owners 65 or older or disabled. 

Bluebonnets are gorgeous.

If you are going to invite someone to be your neighbor, you should be wearing a red cardigan sweater like Mr Rogers did

Ed Silva - you crack me up! Wearing a red cardigan sweater is a good idea but not when you're going through a heat wave! 😀

Patricia I bet a field of bluebonnets is spectacular to see in person.

George Souto - Bluebonnet fields are pretty special. It's a sight I never get tired of. It's as if Mother Nature designed a unique quilt across the fields.

Oh, I would definitely want to try Gyro 360.  And question - what's a yard-bird?

 

I like all your other information but I'm hungry now reading this and can't concentrate. Haha.

 

Enjoy your day!
